If you're into low key Chinese buffets, this is the place for you! My family and I were just craving some good ole Chinese food and this place didn't disappoint! It's average but we were okay with that! If you're looking for fancy, don't come here!

Not the worst not the greatest. Makes for a quick lunch break. Price to me is a little high as you wait on you Self other then the drink.

Eating my lo mien noodles was like eating spoon fulls of salt. Had to rinse it with warm water. Didn't work. Had to throw it away. The spring rolls were good.

I'll be back in Destin and this will be a sure stop next time. The owner took time to visit with us as hes bussed tables and... More

These are harder to find in this area, but this one is just fine. It's not as huge as some, but that's a good thing too. Best items were the huge wontons in the soup, good fried ones too and the spicy chicken dishes. Price is right too at $8.99 for lunch.

Service was good. Food was poor quality but edible. I recommend you go to one of the other local restaurants in the area.
